Teaching and Learning Series

T&L Summer 2018


The Teaching and Learning Series focuses on proven strategies that can be implemented at the course level to create inclusive climates and engage all students in deep learning. Our goal is to provide our ELAC family with workshops on self-regulated learning, active learning, research-based principles for building inclusive communities and teaching to increase student learning, developing a first-gen mindset, recognizing student learning and success and to consider how information about who our students are and how they are performing can be used to ensure their success.
